GOD DIDN’T CALL ANY MINISTER TO BE FINANCIAL WEALTHY!
The bitter truth you may find hard to accept is that a genuine full time minister of God is not meant to be a wealthy or rich man; you will not find one in the Bible and among the old time ministers of the gospel even till Charles Spurgeon.
A full time minister can make millions of dollars in investments and business, but he doesn’t amass the riches, he is a channel not a container. D. L Moody made millions of dollars from his published hymn books, but he never had gum in his hands to stick the money, but the money passed through his hands.
I started business with my wife few years ago with N60,000 and within a year, God blessed it, we made about N6,000,000. So, billions of dollar can pass through a minister of God, and he will never have assets worth one million dollar.
A genuine minister of God does not store wealth, but to freely shares, he does not live luxurious lifestyle, he doesn’t use most expensive things even if he can afford it, but he lives moderately as an example of moderation. Do you understand?
A minister of God who has millions stored in his bank account and telling his members with financial difficulties to have faith without sharing from what he stores is not an heavenly minded Christian. Moderation doesn’t mean you are poor but moderate in all things.
A Christian who spends more than his means, how will such Christian not support extravagant ministers?
There are so so many needs for a genuine minister of God to meet in taking care of God’s work freely and the people that he can never become a millionaire at any point, no matter hos God blesses him, and he cannot amass wealth for himself in this life to be recognized by this world as a wealthy person or having millions in his bank account laying fallow.
Any ministers of God who amasses wealth that the world sees as millionaire lacks heavenly vision, the earth is their heaven, they don’t have any other heaven to go, and their belly is their gods.
“For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ: 19 whose end is destruction, whose god is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame—who set their mind on earthly things.” Philippians 3:18, 19.
